layout | groupon addicts


If you haven't yet discovered the wonder that is Groupon, then you're really missing out. Almost every day (sometimes the deals run all weekend instead of just one day) there's a new "deal," and it's often a restaurant at 50% off or more. We don't really get out to eat much...or at least we didn't until this came along...and this sort of forces us to take some time off of all the work we're usually doing and go out and enjoy something for a while. For that Groupon deserves its own layout, made with the July Sweet Peach kit.


I've been taking photos of most of the lunches and dinners that we indulge in, but they are a huge range of colors, lighting, and quality as some were taken with my iPhone and others with my D3. To give them all a common look and feel I ran them through the Instagram app on my phone, applying a vintage texture and frame to each before printing at 2"x2".


This page is based on a sketch at Sweet Peach by their fabulous in-house sketch artist. They host sketch challenges twice a month, and there's a chance to win a gift certificate to the shop if you enter.


I would also be remiss if I didn't mention Living Social, a site very similar to Groupon and one that we use just as often. Both sites have offers in multiple cities, and it's definitely worth checking to see if there's one near you!
